SheBlossoms is one of the best online relationship support groups for women! Why? Because we focus on changing the only thing we can control: ourselves. We know that the best way to navigate rocky relationships is to get emotionally and spiritually healthy.
Here at SheBlossoms, we dig into the four most important aspects of emotional and spiritual health: Creativity, Healing, Connection, and Daring. Every week I write four blog posts that encourage and inspire women to Blossom in their creativity, health, relationships, and adventures. I also send a free weekly SheBlossoms newsletter with updates and inspiration.
My purpose is to help women navigate rocky relationships with confidence and peace by receiving God’s healing, love, and power. This isn’t necessarily a Christian online relationship support group for women, but it is God-centered. Why? Because I want to share the amazing freedom that God gives us. When you connect with Him, you become who He intended you to be. So, here’s everything you need to know about SheBlossoms and me…
To learn more about me, read About Laurie Pawlik-Kienlen. Feel free to ask questions about me and Blossom in the comments section of any article. I don’t give advice, but I’m happy to share what I know about things I know about! Writing, blogging, God, Blossoming, healing, accepting, surrendering, forgiving, and joyful living.
Here’s why I created SheBlossoms, how you’ll benefit from this online relationship support group for women, and how to start navigating the rockiest relationships in your life…
Everything You Need to Know About SheBlossoms
The biggest surprise about SheBlossoms is how long it took to bloom! I started blogging in 2008, with a series of “Quips and Tips” blogs. I loved it, but after a few years found myself restless. I needed something more, but I didn’t know what.
So I went to grad school at UBC for my MSW (Master of Social Work). I thought I was finished with blogging, that I’d be a counselor for people with chronic illnesses. After two internships through the social work program, I realized that writing is my calling.
I am a writer, but it took me a long time to realize it. Blossoming is a process – and the wait is worth it.
Why I created SheBlossoms
My mission is to encourage women to grow and Blossom. But wait, there’s more!
I love writing articles about practical relationship and life problems, but I can’t give advice. I don’t feel comfortable telling women what I think they should do about their boyfriends or husbands because I don’t know the whole story. Relationship problems are complex, and a simple solution can’t be given in the comments section of a blog post.
The best online relationship support groups encourage women to stop and listen. They inspire women to grow emotionally and spiritually, to make decisions with confidence (and a little fear and trembling), and to seek God’s wisdom before asking other people for advice.

SheBlossoms is about freedom and authenticity
Over the past two years, I’ve been getting closer and closer to God. I just can’t believe the healing, power, joy, and life He offers! The more time I spend with Him, the more free and authentic I am.
Do you feel free? Healed from your past? Joyful in this moment? If not, you’re normal! But you don’t have to be normal!! You can be healed from your emotional baggage, freed from the pain of the past, and released from whatever is holding you back.
What you’ll get from SheBlossoms
I write articles that weave practical life and relationship tips with encouragement and inspiration from Scripture, prayer, and spiritual wisdom. For example, How to Come Alive When You Feel Dead Inside is one of my most popular posts right now.
Every article has a specific focus, problem, or question.
Here’s the weekly schedule:
Creative You – on Mondays, you’ll learn how to find your voice in art, music, writing, singing, dancing, or creating random things out of cool objects you find at home on on the street. How does this help you navigate rocky relationships? What place does creativity have in an online relationship support group for women? Join SheBlossoms and find out!
Healthy You – on Tuesdays, you’ll discover tips for becoming healthier physically, spiritually, emotionally, and mentally. The stronger and more stable you are, the better able you’ll be to make difficult relationship decisions. SheBlossoms is about holistic health – and that’s why I call it one of the best online relationship support groups for women.
Connected You – on Wednesdays, you’ll get what you signed up for: relationship tips. I write articles about your relationship not just with your husband or boyfriend, but with your self. With God. The more connected you are to your authentic self, the more you bring to every other relationship in your life. For instance, I recently wrote How to Overcome Insecurity and Fear in Your Relationship.
Daring You – on Thursdays, I encourage you to take risks! I dare you to apply for grad school, talk to your husband about whatever is bothering you, and stand up to your boss. I want you to Blossom, to grow and become more of the beautiful woman God created you to be. The only way to grow is to step out of the hothouse and be yourself in the garden. Yes, you’ll get in trouble. But it’ll be worth it.
SheBlossoms is about listening to the still small voice
This online relationship support group is for women to learn how to listen to the still small voice inside of them. You don’t have to call it God, but I do. You might call it your intuition or a gut feeling. Maybe it’s the universe, or the God of your heart.
It doesn’t matter what you call the still small voice, as long as you listen. And that’s what I want to help you learn. It’s harder than asking for relationship advice, but it’s a thousand times more rewarding. A million!!
As I write this, SheBlossoms is a tiny sprout. It’s one of the newest online relationship support groups for women. If you join me, we make it the best one on the internet!
